  1. YeeHaa X 2. One for the short stories and one for the 1 week till I get a peek at Changes.

  2. Sounds awesome, i cant wait 😀 😀
    Quick question though, have “Even Hand” and “Love Hurts” been released yet???

  3. @Ivan — “Songs of Love and Death,” the anthology containing “Love Hurts,” will also be released in November. But whoops, I slipped up on “Even Hand”! That story cannot be included in the “Side Jobs” compilation, as the “Dark and Stormy Knights” anthology has been delayed.

  4. Great news… I often buy the anthologies just for Jim’s work anyway, so it’s nice to be able to get straight Dresden stories. 🙂

  5. As a true fan I’m in my happy place waiting for the new releases. I am disapointed though that Jim won’t be touring in San Francisco this year. I missed him last time and was hoping to have another chance.

  6. I cannot wait for Changes! I’ve been in a state of hysteria since finishing Turn Coat! LoVe the wallpaper!

  7. I absolutely cannot wait until the next book comes out. I find myself roaming the bookstore hoping maybe someone made a mistake and put a copy out early.

  8. WOOT Can not wait for the new book jim keep up the awesome work love the wall paper by the way

  9. Thank you THANK YOU!! This Anthology is so over due. 😀 I can’t wait!

  10. OMG I am so ready for Changes to come out. I have re-read the whole series again and all of alera to keep my sanity. Never mind the luck souls that managed to get the advance copies, sigh

  11. Excellent, now I’ll have something to fill the gap since I don’t have another Codex Alera book to look forward to. =)

  12. So looking forward to the Dresden Anthology, and I wonder if James Marsters will do an Audio version.

  13. I think I’m going to die in anticipation while I wait.
    I just reread every book in the series and the entire Alera series and I’m still not satisfied.

  14. 1680×1050 for widescreen 22” monitors please.
    See, I can imagine other sizes (and my suggestion is a standard resolution, nothing special)…

  15. 1680×1050 is proportionally identical to 1920×1200. Just grab that one and resize.

  16. If you should pass before Dresden is made merlin, I will drag you back, kicking and screaming to finsh what you have started, and D@n* the laws of magic
